Pencil drawing, of an old friend

I drew this, while listening to the radio this morning. I was wondering whether to apply any color to it, but liquids are not applicable, this is regular sketching paper, which doesn't take paints well. As always, the photo was a gray blur, and my attempts to make the image visible, via Gimp, have taken the nuances out, and increased the contrasts, to the detriment of the image.

One may disagree on whether the colored version is better. But at least, I got myself a reason to go out to Boesner once again and get some colored pencils ( "Progresso" from Koh-i-Noor.

pencil, 20 x 30 cm; Koh-i-noor Progresso color sticks
